we are in a time where everyone's focusing on what is wrong. out here in san francisco, here in california, we are focusing on what is right, the sense of spirit, pride, that sense of possibility is back in our city. i am proud of that, and you should be as well. [applause] let me close by asking bill neukom to come up, representing the ownership of our giants, and do something that we rarely get to do. this is the highest honor that a city can bestow upon a dignitary, and it just seems appropriate that we bestowed this honor today on this special day, here in our great city and county of san francisco,
